's review

it was ok
bookshelves: short-stories, read-2019

I was excited to read this because Eugenides is one of my favourite novelists. Two of the stories in here had quite obviously formed the basis for two of them. But, apart from 'Great Experiment', I was not really at all excited by any of these. It was basically one man's midlife crisis after another. Overall, I think his style lends itself better to novels.

I'm going to go for 2 stars because if nothing else, that last story — the title story! — was so WTF in the worst ways.
